Amsterdam City Guide

With its picturesque canals and beautiful architecture, Amsterdam is one of the world’s most iconic and unique cities. The capital of the Netherlands is one of the most bike-friendly cities on Earth, and, as well as being a way of life in Amsterdam, cycling is the easiest way to get around the city when staying at a hotel in Amsterdam. From your Golden Tulip hotel in Amsterdam, pay a visit to the Van Gogh Museum which holds over 1000 paintings by the Dutch Post-Impressionist, the largest collection of his works in the world. Don’t miss, either, the Anne Frank House, a poignant museum in the house in which Anne and her family lived in hiding for two years. Wander among narrow cobbled lanes lined with antique shops and art galleries in Jordaan, visit one of the city’s famous markets, such as the Albert Cuypmarket to grab a bargain, or just soak up the atmosphere - there’s always a great mood in this vibrant, good-humoured city.

Things to do in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city where high and low culture is intertwined, and at the high end of that spectrum you'll find the Rijksmuseum. It is home to famous works from Rembrandt, Vermeer, and other Dutch Masters. The Stedelijk Museum hosts modern works from Picasso, Matisse, and Chagall, while the Van Gogh Museum is another must-see for modern art fans. One of the most exciting things to do in Amsterdam is to hire a bike and tour around the city's network of 165 canals, or hop on board a colourful houseboat and admire the waterside flower boxes as you drift away. You can learn more about the city's history during WWII by visiting the devastating Anne Frank Huis, to see where she wrote her famous diary.

Things to see in Amsterdam

There are green spaces throughout Amsterdam, and you're never too far from a picturesque park. If the Vondelpark is too crowded, beat the crowds and disappear into the sprawling Amsterdamse Bos, featuring thick wooded areas interspersed with meadows and cycling paths. There's even an organic goat farm on the premises selling freshly churned ice cream. For some alternative things to see in Amsterdam, take a guided tour of the Heineken brewery or wander through the revitalized De Biljmer neighbourhood with its Imagine IC Cultural Centre. You can find many unique shops in Amsterdam, but truly incredible deals can be had on vintage clothing and antiques at flea markets such as Noordermarkt and Waterlooplein. Sift through the velvet ribbons and antique lace to find a treasure.
